Just in time for Saturdays on the back deck (or, let’s be real, on the two square feet of sunlight you have on your patio), Steam Whistle Brewing has introduced a new beer to its roster. Now sitting proudly alongside the classic Pilsner, the brewery is offering a Pale Ale, distinguishable by its sky-blue can. If you’ve yet to try the new brew, today’s the perfect day.

Watch King of Beers

While this new doc isn’t in theatres until Aug 7 in Toronto, Kings of Beer is now available on-demand. The film offers a never-before-seen look at the standards and competition behind the brewing of Budweiser beer.

Waterfront patios in Toronto are somewhat scarce, which makes them all the more special. What better way to celebrate a special day such as this? And on the eve of a beautifully-forcasted long weekend, too. In high demand on hot days, these patios are the places to be to soak up the sun while the lake breeze keeps you cool. Here’s where to live large, lakeside, tonight in Toronto.
